Bedrock's already tend to pack some pretty great vineyard sources into this bottling, but their bearish approach to the 2019 vintage means that a lot of juice that normally would have gone into the vineyard-designated wines has trickled down into this offering. Raised in a wide variety of French and Austrian barrels, puncheons, and foudres (about 10% new) and only racked at bottling, this wine has a dark core of perfumed, dense fruit. This is a classic California Zinfandel and will go down as one of the best Old Vine bottlings Bedrock has made.
If you were to tell me 13 years ago that a lightly colored, well-structured, expressively perfumed wine from Amador County that is more about finesse than power would be one of our most popular wines, I would have been quite surprised (thankful, but surprised). Esola is as singular as the former dancer, Denise Esola, who oversees this remarkable site today and my favorite wine to break out for people who purport to have an “old world” palate. Though there is plenty of California fruit here, it lies upon a firm foundation (the subsoil is granite) that reminds me more of Nerello Mascalese or Trousseau Noir than what people typically think of for California Zin.
"Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, chocolate, leather, menthol and licorice all flesh out in the 2017 Zinfandel Esola Vineyard. Dense, pliant and inviting, the wine impresses with its exceptional balance and pure class."- 94 Points Vinous Media
Clear, dark golden brown with very strong legs. Characteristic bouquet with complex dried fruits and wood, toffee and vanilla. Sweet, smooth, full bodied, complex, and a long finish of nuts and dark chocolate.
Best served chilled as an aperitif, this dry Madeira has soft fruit with a hint of nuttiness and a clean, crisp finish.
"In a recent series of entry-level Madeiras, this was a standout, offering excellent complexity and richness at a reasonable price."- Wine Enthusiast

Pouring a glowing orange/copper color, Funkier Pumpkin leaps from the glass with a rich, pumpkin spice aroma punctuated by funky, forest floor notes from the brettanomyces, a wild yeast strain known for imparting unique flavors and aromas. With an effervescent mouthfeel thanks to spritzy carbonation, the flavor of Funkier Pumpkin features a balanced array of pumpkin pie spices including nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and allspice. No single spice dominates before giving way to a slight pumpkin flavor that transitions into pleasant, refreshing tartness; a slight warming finish from the cinnamon and ABV and a touch of toasty, toffee-like sweetness from caramel malt. Funkier Pumpkin will be available exclusively in 750 mL bottles.

West Block is located in a cool, wind-blown area of Petaluma in the Sonoma Coast AVA. Planted in the early-90’s to the Joseph Phelps clone of Syrah, this vineyard block is oriented east-west allowing even ripening during the long, extended growing season. The close proximity to the San Pablo Bay create a maritime climate that further accentuates the cool climate for Petaluma. The soils are derived from decomposed sandstone and shale, adding intense structure and complexity to our Sonoma Coast Nouveau.
Our 2019 Sonoma Coast Nouveau is comprised of 51% Syrah from West Block in Petaluma Gap and 49% Pinot Noir from Home Block in Sonoma Coast. Produced by way of a ten day carbonic maceration, this wine has a vivacious intensity on the nose and lively fresh palate: juicy peppered strawberry, ripe plum, and fresh violet, overlaid with notes of bay laurel, juniper and lavender. We love to drink this wine slightly chilled and pair it with smoked meats, charcuterie or hot smoked salmon.
Our Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of lemon, lime, grapefruit, honeydew melon, orange peel, and white flowers. On the palate, there is more vibrant citrus with melon, honeysuckle flavors followed by a crisp acidity and touch of minerality. A bit of Semillon and Viognier in the blend add another layer of complexity to the wine with flavors of kiwi and lemon cream pie. By fermenting in stainless steel, French oak, and concrete, we build layers of complexity. The barrel fermentations add texture, density, and viscosity to the mid-palate of the wine, while the concrete adds a touch of flint and minerality to the finish along with mid-palate richness. Stainless steel fermentations preserve the natural Sauvignon Blanc aromatics, vibrant acidity and crispness.
Surpassingly fresh, vivid aromas of white flowers, ripe melon and citrus fruit introduce rich, zesty flavors of pink grapefruit, melon and guava, leading to a long, crisp finish buoyed by bright acidity and refreshing citrus and mineral tones. Irresistible now, this classic Napa Valley sauvignon blanc will age gracefully for the next 3-5 years and beautifully accompany seafood, poultry, vegetable and salad dishes.
This controlled and guaranteed origin (DOCG) ASOLO PROSECCO wine is created from a selection of grapes obtained from the vineyards owned by the company in the district of Montello and the Asolo hills, and has a characteristically low yield per hectare. It is vinified in white with partial cold maceration of the grapes and extremely slow processing to create a sparkling wine, at low temperature in pressure tank. The elegant and refined nature of this sparkling wine make it unique as an aperitif and in combination with rice and vegetable dishes or with dishes of Mediterranean cuisine based on fish.
"Fragrant yellow flower, crushed thyme, Bartlett pear and citrus aromas carry over to the dry vibrant palate together with green apple and crisp acidity. Small, continuous bubbles lend finesse." -Wine Enthusiast
"Syrah. Partially destemmed fruit. Limestone sand, red clay and pebbles on Villafranchian terraces. Tank ageing. When I made my first Cotes du Rhone in 1997, my father Henri Barruol drew the label in Indian ink portraying the pretty lodge located at the entrance to the estate. Never could I have imagined at that time that the wine would become so popular with our customers. The original idea was to make a Syrah-based Côtes du Rhône, unlike virtually all Côtes du Rhône which is generally made from Grenache. We wanted to make a fruit-forward, rounded, fresh wine. Those ideas remain unchanged – they still have currency and I try and ensure incremental progress in our Côtes du Rhône with every passing year. Obviously, we are always dependent on what the vintage gives us but in actual fact, the fruit was ripe and absolutely stunning. The resultant wine shows lush black fruit, it is rounded and fleshy with a salinity that calls for a fine steak. Blackberry, smoked bacon, coal, blueberry, rose. "
Beautifully bold and bright in color, the Les Cadrans de Lassegue is robust, complex, and well-balanced. Aromas of wild strawberries, raspberries, and a subtle woody note immediately emerge from the glass. The wine is smooth on entry, with a palate dominated by red fruits. Alongside the persistent flavor of red fruits, a striking minerality shines through from the old vines of Lassegue. A pleasurable wine that can be enjoyed young.
Blend: 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
